Every so often I take a post to talk about my ministry. There are always new followers of this blog, so I want to let you know exactly who you’re following. I hope that you’ll continue to stick around after you find out!
The Lord called me to be a pastor back in 1987. My anointing, however, is that of a teacher. When the Holy Spirit anoints someone to teach, He works in them to bring out the truths of Scripture; making them plain and understandable to the body of Christ at large.
But the thing you really need to know about me is my passion. What is it that drives me to serve Christ and His church?
I’m absolutely passionate about seeing the Church of Jesus Christ get into position for the Last Days. I believe that we’re on the cusp of the final move of God on the earth before the return of Christ.
The church has come a long way since its backslidden state in the Dark Ages. God continued to move upon His people, restoring things that had been lost. But as far as we’ve come, there’s still one more thing that God needs to restore in us.
I’ve found that there’s a theme throughout the New Testament that we’ve whitewashed over. In spite of the fact that this truth saturates the Scripture, we seem to have missed it.
It’s the understanding that God’s people need to be hearing and obeying God’s voice – His Word. Please understand that I’m not talking about reading the Bible – God’s Holy, Written Word. I’m talking about hearing from Him directly.
I believe that the first book of the New Testament that was written down was the book of James. Listen to what he says.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.
Notice that he uses the word “listen” and not “read”. This is the first of many verses that deals with this issue.
I love the Scripture. I read it, meditate on it, memorize it and confess it. It’s through the written Word of God that I know how to be saved and how to serve the Lord in a general way.
What it doesn’t tell me is exactly what I’m supposed to do. Who am I supposed to reach out to? What am I to say to them and how am I to say it? Where do I fit into the body of Christ?
All of these questions and more can only be answered by the Holy Spirit, Himself. Unfortunately, many Christians think that hearing from God is only for a few highly spiritual individuals.
My passion is to educate believers on where God wants to bring them to and how to get there. Most of what I preach and write about in this blog fulfills a part of this mission.
By the way, I’m currently working on my speaking engagements for the Fall and Winter. If you think that my ministry is something you want to see in your area, check out my Speaking Page on this website. It will have all the information you need to contact me.
The return of the Lord is getting close. We need to be intentional about preparing ourselves for the final harvest.
Question: How prepared are you for the return of Christ?
